Australia Day at the Taproom

Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!

Join us for Australia Day Thursday, Jan. 26 as we celebrate the culture of our great friends from the Land of Oz.

We'll have Australian Trivia (history, media, murderous wildlife, and a picture round) starting around 7 p.m.

There's also going to be a Meat Auction with gift cards and more from South Point Grocery, Charlie's Meat Market, Whole Foods Market, and Fresh Market, among others.

In Australia, pubs do meat raffles but the state of Tennessee views that as a type of gambling, so we're doing the next best thing.

Proceeds go to WIRES, Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organization.

We'll also have a Vegemite tasting.

Shrunken Head at Science of Beer

Here's a new beer that'll take a minute to wrap your head around: Shrunken Head.

This Belgian-style wit ale is brewed with orange peel and coriander.

The name was inspired by one of the many exhibits at the Memphis Museum of Science & History (formerly the Pink Palace).

We'll be serving up this limited edition beer at the upcoming Science of Beer with some Memphis Made favorites on Friday, Jan. 13.

The Science of Beer event is a combination beer tasting and education workshop that raises money for education and programming for MoSH.

This event is an opportunity to talk to local brewers, attend mini-lectures, and participate in other interactive beer-themed activities.

The event will feature beer stations each with some educational components, food vendors, multiple science areas hosted by MoSH and local science groups, mini-lectures, and games.

This is the first major beer event of the Memphis calendar, so you won't want to miss it.

Let's get MALTED

As the weather starts turning colder and the nights start ever earlier, beer drinkers' minds turn to dark beers to help keep them warm.

That's one of the reasons we have our annual MALTED  festival every November.

This year's MALTED will be held Saturday, Nov. 19 at our Cooper-Young taproom.

We'll open the doors at 1 p.m. and the first 100 customers will get a souvenir Malted glass.

The taproom will be open until 10 p.m.

Our brewers came up with some special beers for this event, and we'll unveil them throughout the festival. 

In addition to plenty of malty ales, we'll have live music by San Salidas and HEELS.

Stick 'Em food truck will be parked at our place during the festival.

We've already dropped some hints on what we'll be unveiling at the festival, but follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates on beers and more.

GonerBrau All Year Long

If you’ve been to Gonerfest in the past two years, you’ve probably had the extreme pleasure of having GonerBrau pass over your lips. We’ve brewed this recipe exclusively for the festival in the past, but it’s time to unleash it on the masses. GonerBrau will join the ranks of our year-around offerings.

We'll be launching it at the taproom on Thursday, Oct. 6 with Goner Records spinning some vinyl.

Like many things that come from Memphis Made Brewing and Goner Records, GonerBrau doesn’t quite fit a ready made mold, but definitely hits the spot. This Kveik Pilsner is brewed with a Norwegian strain of yeast that produces a clean profile that lets the malt and hops shine through. Kick back and enjoy this 4.5% ABV sipper while listening to your favorite tunes, hanging with friends, or eating a whole family size bag of chips by yourself (we’re not judging).

Cooper York Fest 2022

It's that time of year again: time for our annual Cooper York Fest!

What's the Cooper York Fest, you ask?

It's a free festival celebrating our neighborhood of Cooper-Young with a mix of beer, music, art, and food, all from our corner of Cooper Street and York Avenue.

This year's festival is Saturday, Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

It will feature live music from Jeff Hulett, San Salida, and the Late Greats. They'll be performing in the big tent in our parking lot, so there should be plenty of shade to help everyone keep cool.

Food trucks Soi#9 and Mexixo in Memphis will be in our parking lot as well, just behind the ramp leading into our taproom.

We will also have a mix of local makers from around the region.

Last but not least, we'll have a wide variety of beers including some you'll only find in our taproom.

Kristy Keptra designed this year's poster and shirt, both of which will be available for purchase.
